Report: Hammers make striker enquiry

West Ham have made an enquiry for Watford striker Troy Deeney.

The Daily Star reports that the Championship ace is attracting interest from a couple of Premier League clubs; both the Hammers and West Brom have asked about the 32-year-old.  

Deeney has been with Watford since 2012 and has made 399 appearances for the club, scoring 133 goals.

He has captained the club in the Premier League but was unable to stave off the threat of relegation last term, as the Hornets ultimately finished 19th.

Deeney has played just one minute of Championship football this term, but that may well be to protect him ahead of a possible move back to the top-flight.

Watford are said to be open to offers for the experienced forward, but it remains to be seen if the Irons will follow up their initial enquiry.

We have also reported that there is interest in Brentford winger Said Benrahma, while Josh King at Bournemouth is also a potential acquisition.

  1. Dont see many defenders in that lot.

  2. I do not believe we have expressed an interest in Deeney, his signing would go down terribly with West Ham fans, a totally overated player.

  3. Bit early for April fools day jokes !

  4. Young, something to prove and outstanding prospect?
    No, no and err no.

  5. Could be a decent shout for a season long loan allow us to offload Haller if he is unhappy as reported and provide cover for Antonio

  6. Never forgave him for his negative comments about Payet’s brilliant rabona cross for a goal against Watford!

  7. Is this some kind of a sick joke ? I hate this player with a passion.Cnut definately comes to mind when I hear his name.

  8. Troy would be a big asset. Won’t cost a fortune and has all the attributes and attitude to make things happen up front. He wouldn’t be as shy as Seb Haller and knows how to make the most out of ‘limited’ talent. Ideal – just what we have needed for a while.
    Bring him on !
